Arrest Made in Murder for Hire Scheme
Huntsville, Alabama (July 15, 2009): On Tuesday, July 14, the Huntsville Police Department Major Crimes Unit (MCU), along with the Madison-Morgan County Strategic Counter-drug Team (STAC) and investigators from the Madison County District Attorney’s Office arrested Kerry Lynn Flemming, 46, of Huntsville in connection with a murder-for-hire scheme after Flemming attempted to enlist another person to kill his (Flemming’s) estranged wife.
This incident came to light in late June when the Major Crimes Unit received information alleging that Flemming had offered an individual cash to kill an unknown female. After an extensive investigation, Major Crimes Unit Investigators determined the allegation to be legitimate. Madison County District Attorney Rob Broussard was briefed on the details and promptly assigned investigators from his office to assist with the investigation. The STAC Unit was brought in to assist with the investigation and provide technical expertise.
After an extensive collaborative effort, Flemming was arrested and charged with one count of Criminal Solicitation (Class A Felony). He is currently being held in the Madison County Jail. Additional charges could be brought as this investigation continues.
